Coral Fractals

Victor Wong

Artist Statement

A fractal is a basic principle of growth that we can commonly find in organic life forms or natural phenomena, such as network of leaf veins, the six-fold symmetry of a snowflake, or discharging patterns of high voltage. A fractal is a fragmented geometric shape that can be split into parts, each of which is a smaller copy of the whole, a property called self-similarity.


Some corals are natural fractals. Inspired by their growth patterns, Coral Fractals, one of the artworks of Decoding Nature Series, consists of ten abstract sculptures of various sizes and shapes that resemble a coral reef. It represents the wish that we live and work in harmony (like different kinds of coral) in our multicultural communities. Geometric patterns engraved on some of the coral sculptures were shaped by natural activities. Visitors can learn more about these natural activities with an AR app from mid-July onwards.

Decoding Nature

Natural structures are organic and sometimes poetic, but never chaotic. They follow certain rules that can be explained by mathematics or scientific findings. If you look closer to your surrounding environment, you will be amazed at how orderly nature is. In fact, nature develops its structures in order to reach optimal energetic, long-term solutions. Common arrangements are shells, trees, webs and skeletons, all of them are controlled by certain factors, such as forces of nature, global forms, local structures and quality of material. Inspired by “mathematical structures in nature”, I created a series of installations collectively named Decoding Nature for the “Science in Art” exhibition.

The series comprises three large-scale exhibits: a turtle-shaped parametric structure titled Loving Home, a group of metallic sculptures titled Coral Fractals and a piece of stone-mural titled Eternal Light of a Seashell.

His work has won numerous international design awards, including the New York Festival Awards, the Tokyo JIAA Advertising Awards, the Hong Kong Film Awards, and The Golden Horse Awards.


In 2015, he created new ink art using 3D digital technology and Artificial Intelligence and created A. I. Ink Painting Artist “A. I. GEMINI” as his “creative partner”. In 2019, he exhibited his first “TECH-iNK”, titled Series Escapism, at the Ink Art Pavilion “INK NOW”, in Taipei, and Far Side of the Moon, in London. Recently, Victor was awarded “MARTELL Artist of the Year 2019 (Asia)”.
